Hi guys,
I am a newbie to exchange who looking for some technical advice from experts.
Here is my story:
1. I have a domain name which i registered long time ago (eg.

2. I had config this domain name to be my domain and assign public IP address to that domain name. The public IP address is my router interface. My router allow port 80 and 443 for SSL

3. I have no drama sending and receiving email over internet at this stage.

4. BUT here is my problem guys. I try to enable OWA, it works fine internally through this URL https://servername/exchange
When i try to connect over internet. I cant reach my exchange server through

Im not using front-back end topology atm.

Could anyone give some advice on this?
Do i need a pulic IP for my exchange?

    I understand we can map A host to IP address assigned to exchange by that way i can access over internet.
